Today while going to work, something caught my attention. Not as if, have not been noticing their presence but I had failed to realized how useful they were. Guess what it was! It was plants, when I talk about plant they include trees, grasses, flowers, herbs and shrubs. I know if we ask a layman the main importance of trees, he will be quick to mention ; furniture makings. Yes! It is an essential material when it comes to production of chairs, beds, food cabinets. So the usefulness of the tree will never be undermine. Hold on a second! What if, we wake up one day and they are all gone ? Is that even possible ? Of course yes, if man continues with this habit of falling down trees without planting new ones in years to come, we will be left without trees.

Deforestation is this harmful practice of falling down trees while afforestation is the healthy practice of planting trees. Man's constant taste for a luxurious lifestyle has led to a devastating effect on our ecosystem. We all know how useful trees are when it comes to oxygen and purification of the air, so without trees they is bound to be polluted air in the environment. Though this trees are used to make life easy, such as chairs for sitting, cabinets for storage, papers which we use for writing, canoes as means of transportation and the fruits from trees also serve as food source, constant falling of them will lead to chaos in our ecosystem. A comprehensive effect of deforestation on our environment ;

i) Air pollution

ii) Animal extinction

iii) Environmental hazards

iv) Disruption in Survival Level of Man

Air Pollution : It is well known that 80% of the air we breathe is the by product of plants. Which explains that fact that without presence of trees, it will be difficult to breathe clean air. As their absence in the environment will make it polluted with excessive carbon(iv)oxide which is the by product of respiration.

An environment filled with trees offers cleaner and more safer quality of air. Trees helps to trap dust particles, smoke and other injurious substances in our environment.

Food Shortage and Animal Extinction : Most animals have their homes on trees, root of trees and this shows how much trees are important. Cutting down of trees will tend to drive this animals away, get them killed and the ones that will survive may pose great danger to man, as their food chain I interrupted.

Green plants synthesizes food through photosynthesis and every other organisms on earth, depends on it for survival either directly or indirectly. Directly in cases of thr herbivores and indirectly in cases of the carnivores. Carnivorous animals do not eat plants but eats herbivores. In situation where there are no plants for synthesizes, the natural food chain will be disrupted, leading to animals preying on man for survival.

Environmental Hazards : Trees are very important when it comes to maintenance of a clean environment, spanning from the purification of the air to the protection against winds. In environments without trees, houses and other structures will be of great targets to wind, and this will posed a terrific damage to man. And they will be less rainfall because the absence of trees will affect the formation of rain. The by product of photosynthesis is water , and when it is released into the environment, it cools the environment either directly through precipitation as rain or through other means. But instances when the rainfall, the earth will experience massive mudslide and flooding as they will be no barrier to prevent this activities from taking place.

Disruption in Survival Level of Man : They will be no wood for building of houses, canoes and furniture, interrupting the once luxurious lifestyle of man. They will be no camp fires as wood will be scarce, no papers for making books and dairies ( so we won't have were to write our secrets anymore), no toilet papers making it difficult to clean our buttocks whenever we use the toilet.

All these and more could be prevented if we start the planting of trees today, let's save our world from the impending danger of deforestation. Let's start the awareness campaigns on the need to practice afforestation.

I agree with you my friend. I'm just happy because some of school here in our province was already started that what they called " tree planting". Trees are also providing us so many benefits, that is why we should take good care of it and learned how to give importance to it, because at the end where are the one who will be suffer.

Indeed, I had no more to disagree as you have mentioned all the importance of tress to us and to animals who are also dependent to tree's. Tree's are very useful in many ways and it also protect us from natural calamities.

Looking for other means than affecting our source of air, will be a better option

I agree with you, I'm teaching in mountains, so I know how it's very important these tress to us. If it's necessary, just make sure to replace it. Save the earth, it saves us in the future.

Deforestation is like to snatch shelter from many living organisms. Yeah they are saving us from air pollution and providing fresh air. We should stop this practice otherwise we have to face pollutants in air.
